Each year wildland fires strike on nearly every continent, and each year they are becoming increasingly more devastating. But each year valuable lessons are learned by firefighters about better ways to manage them.
Sydney, while one of the world’s most beautiful cities, is also in the heart one of the worlds most wildland fire prone areas That is why we are very pleased to invite you to join us here, in June next year, for International Wildfire Management Conference Australia, 2009.
This conference is jointly sponsored by the NSW Rural Fire Service, the Rural Fire Service Association in association with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC).
This major conference will bring together experts from around the world to look at many of the major issues facing wildland firefighters and agencies, as well as land managers and environmentalists.
The conference will present three main streams:
Technology and Research
A Safer Community
Challenges We Face
These streams will cover a range of topics, with key presentations by fire personnel, land managers, environmental experts, educators and government and community representatives that have extensive experience in combating wildland fires, and protecting communities from their impacts. Theprogram has been designed to allow delegates to attend aspects of each stream so they will be able to choose from the topics that best fit their specific interests. Additionally, the Conference will incorporate an outstanding trade exhibition where you will be able to see some of the best wildland firefighting products and services in the world on display.
